Design Star 2016

Hi friends, One of my most favorite things is to curate fabric bundles, sometimes I will just create combos in my sewing room for future projects just for fun - we all do that right?

My friend Beth over at Stash Fabrics invited me to create a fun bundle of 12 prints and 4 coordinating solids this November (I am thinking I might have to come up with a mod Christmas collection!) There are 10 other sewing friends creating bundles as well, and the list is pretty amazing! I love how there are so many styles represented in this group, and I think your stash will love it too!

As a member of the year long club, you will receive these beautifully curated bundles each month straight to your mailbox in either fat quarter or half yard cuts. In addition, the Stash Fabrics team will be working on quick projects throughout the month using the bundles with hopes of inspiring you to find the time to create with new, pretty fabric. This could be just what you need!

Hmmm, 11 design stars, 12 months…but who will select the bundle for that final month?!?

…IT COULD BE YOU!

Yes, you have a chance to show off your fabric bundling skills and have the opportunity to be the 12th Design Star!
